Both the existence of Australian fauna, such as the platypus, and the twenty-cent coin are endangered. The coin, by the inflationary economic development, and the platypus by the associated environmental collapse. In " Liquidity" molten flow patterns from a twenty-cent coin, partially melted by bushfire, displace the dying platypus into a bed of coals and burnt logs sourced from bushfire sites. An accompanying augmented reality video of the platypus will be accessible by smart phones via a QR code and locates the video into the site.
